148 Tasting Notes
5th steep – so bizarre that I still can’t decide if I love it. My partner, on the other hand, can’t get enough.
I forgot to log the first steep, so this is for the second steep.
I have never tried a bi luo chun green before, and the flavor is fascinating. It’s not like any green I’ve tried before. There’s a bit of the pan-roasted flavor I expect in a chinese green, along with a lot of fruit that my (unsophisticated) palate can’t quite place. In addition it has a buttery/oil flavor.
I’m fascinated by this flavor. I haven’t decided if I love it yet, but it’s definitely complex.
General note to describe the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th steeping: still an amazing oolong. The 2nd steeping made my partner say “I didn’t know tea could taste this good”.
Wow, so delicious. I was lucky to get some fantastic teas for my birthday, and this was one of them. The aroma from this tea, both in the bag and after steeping, is rich, floral, and sweet. It has that incredible mouth feel where it seems like your mouth is watering after you take a sip. I am so excited to do a 2nd steeping on this tea and I’m positive I’ll be very sad when I run out!
First off, thank you Epi Tea for the sample!
It was serene, but I didn’t taste any chai. The flavor was a bit on the weak side and reminded me of average bagged black tea. I got a hint of creaminess out of it and keep wondering where all the spice flavor is.
I’m not usually into jasmine teas, but this was a tasty cup. The taste was mellow and everything blended well together. It soothed the savage beast of waiting in line at the doctor’s office.
It might just be where I had this, but man, I would not drink this every day. Meh verging on the border of blech.
I love English and Irish breakfast teas, especially on the strong side. This had a nice smoky flavor and a bit of maltiness, but I didn’t get the POW from it that I love in an Irish breakfast tea. The flavor was delicate, not strong.
Thank you Epi Tea for the samples! I am so excited to try the rest of them after this.
This was a beautiful steep, the leaves began to unfold and the water turned color as soon as I put in the pyramid tea bag. The flavor is mellow, a hint of cream, lavender, and bergamot. This is a delicious and smooth earl grey!
This tea is so decent for the price, and for being a bagged tea. It has a great smoky/malty flavor, and like K S said you can oversteep it and no problem. I once let a cup of this go an extra 6 minutes while I was prepping dinner, and no harm done.
